. i'm very concerned about the future. there's so much uncertainty, in taxes and inflation is a big concern of mine. is there anything i can do at my age to protect myself from all these uncertainties? >> you're a person who does have to heed my 20% in gld and gold bullion. i think the defense is right to have. i'm not going to tell you to buy bonds that yield 2%. i think gold is going to be the best defense you have against the worries that you just outlined. let's go to anthony in virginia, please. anthony? >> caller: washington redskins booyah! rg3 nation stand up. >> dan snyder is your owner. have you thought about that at all? >> caller: i have a quick question. >> sure. >> caller: when the market is overbought, should i stay on the sidelines or go for the long-term? >> when it's overbought, my own rule is that we're plus five on the oscillator, if we're very overbought, hey, take a pass. another time will come. however, you can get started small and hope it comes back if you just can't resist. sam in ohio. sam. >> caller: hey, jim. big glass city booyah to you. >> loving it. w
about, as the president describes the so-called bush tax rates to be maintained for the middle class, he was not clear i think by intention of saying exactly what that dollar threshold was. is it the $250,000 number that's been out there for months? the $400,000 number that he apparently put on the table as late as last weekend? some other number? >> i think eamon presumed he was referring to $250,000. so you would raise taxes above $250,000, and talk about spending cuts later. i don't see how that will ever get through the house. isn't that where we started? >> at this point, who is going to vote for that? once you as a republican vote for that, how do you have leverage later on ever in the negotiations? >> i think that sets up if they get the basic plan through the senate on democratic votes only and send that plan to the house, what that sets up is a failure of the plan in the house, because that's not something republicans said they could support in the past. what that would do you do is set up a situation where democrats are daring republicans on the last day of the deadline to vote
. the president gave us a little hope tonight that an agreement to avert a middle class tax hike could still occur next week. saw the breakdown play hideously in the session today. dow shrimping 120 points. nasdaq diving .96%. it makes sense the market got a whacking when you consider that the speaker of the house didn't have enough votes in his own party to push through any tax increases and the president says there's got to be some. that's even for people making more than a million bucks. it was for show. the president would have vetoed the bill. he insisted again that he will not -- tonight, he's not about to let the rich get away with it, whatever that means. we have been worried that since the election the politicians won't rise above partisanship and come to an agreement. we at cnbc have taken an historic position. get a deal done for the good of the country. what faces us is worrisome. nation could see 2 million jobs loss. slashing of unemployment benefits when you are laying people out. dramatic increases in taxes for everyone. including those who are just scrimping by. these are draconian
small until another time without any violation of principles. a politician took the tax increase pledge to the most powerful impact of the republican party. norquist can't vote for one. memo to washington who people think there could be a deal easily, these republicans don't fear the wrath of speaker boehner like they do the whip of norquist. in two weeks' time, we'll have a dramatic tax increase. going over the cliff is the only way these norquist controlled republicans can spare the wrath of grover. which i believe having known grover for 35 years is indeed worth than the wrath of khan. so why bother to sell now? it's a pretty legitimate subsequent, can't it? now we rallied 7% from the november woes. and i believe we can keep selling off. not hard, but certainly a couple percent as more and more people recognize that we could be going over the cliff. even if this is why you shouldn't sell. pull back again. perhaps by getting the achievable goal by helping the middle class with tax breaks. remember, it isn't a cliff where you have a hard landing. more kind of a jump on to a trampoline,
vulnerable if competition ever spiked in a big way or the tax rates on dividends went up dramatically and your whole portfolio could get hurt. if you own one stock with a real large yield and one or two other names also sport decent dividends once they get raised, that's not a bad thing. i know dividend-paying stocks may not be what most people consider sexy, but you know what? dividends make you money and to me that's the definition of sex appeal. i've got a pretty warped social life. my perspective here might be a little skewed by the fact remains buying high yielders and reinvesting your dividends back into the stocks, one of the greatest and most reliable ways to make money out there, plain and simple. it allows the interest to compound over time. in other words, over time the money from your past dividends pays dividends. giving you what we call compounding returns. now there's a huge misconception out there about dividends. people think that high-yielders are only about safety or generating income in your retirement but go back to january of 1926, 40% of the return, 40 from the
of the dividend and then you have to pay taxes to the dividend, and isn't comparing dividend stocks to a yield not a apples to apples comparison because of the greatest risk of losing your risk with stock as compared to the ten-year? >> let's get empirical, what stocks have outperformed for the last 20 or 30 years? stocks that pay good dividends. that's reinvested dividend. i'm getting this from jeremy seagal's work. go read his book and you will know exactly why i think dividends are so important. a pullback can be the market giving back. i like stocks that have pulled back from the new high list between 5% and 8%. do the homework. don't chase momentum, it's a starting point, not an ending point.
